I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox. I have a Logitech - G502 Hero gaming mouse that, when used with Chrome, automatically mapped 2 buttons on it to Page Back and Page Forward. In Firefox, those buttons now invariably start the locked scrolling function.

Is there a way to change the mouse shortcuts so they function like they did in Chrome?

Firefox was running slow so it asked if I wanted to "restore." Little did I know that meant it would ask me to "sign up/sign in" to a firefox account and give me a blank slate. By blank slate I mean all of my bookmarks are gone including the ones I use across the toolbar to access information to WRITE MY BOOK. How can firefox not warn me of this and then make it so difficult to get it back? All these tech guys think they have everything figured out...Anyways, I read numerous articles and fallowed step by step and it simply won't allow me to "restore" the folder I found containing my bookmarks ( inside the OLD firefox Data folder that is now sitting on my desktop. Please help. It jsut says unable to process backup file. It also doesnt let me click on the folder. it says open the folder and reveals individual bookmarks which then can be opened but it still just says unable to process.

1: Sometimes when middle-clicking a link to open it in another tab, it will open the new tab with the address of the link I clicked, in the background, but not load it at all.

2: Sometimes when clicking a link (to open in the current tab), it does nothing at all, or selecting an option in a dropdown box won't refresh the page with the new information (for example, zandesk dropdown menus for bug reporting for a developer's game will select the item, but not reload the page with the now relevant boxes to fill out- happens everywhere, noticed it there).

3: Pages will stop loading before they've actually finished loading, like Firefox is cancelling the load because "it's taking too long". I have 400kbps, Firefox, I'm in no rush to STOP loading a page that I'm trying to load...

I posted this problem back when v.80.0 was out. It was later fixed, but now it's back.

Loading an external bookmark as the default start page in v.83.0 and using it as the default bookmark (file:///C:/Mine/Testing/BOOKMARK.HTM) creates an error.

The error is that clicking on any url in the bookmark to visit and then clicking the top left arrow to return will always bring you to the top of the bookmark. It used to bring you back to the same location on the bookmark. Now, it brings you back to the top of the bookmark. Thus making it necessary to scroll back down to the location (url) you just visited. Really annoying to have to keep do this in order to return to your original location in the bookmark.

Hope someone can help again.

I have tried every suggestion for blocking videos from autoplaying. I have tried Firefox's suggestions, and everything I found on the web, and nothing works. Autoplay happens every time on Fox. Why can't Mozilla get me a straight answer. I cannot be the only person in the world using Firefox, latest version, who has this problem. And, by the way, the way it seems to work is if you leave the video screen visible it does not Autoplay, but as soon as you scroll down to read the article, and thus the video image scrolls up and off the screen, then it starts to play. This isn't just some fluke and I suspect there is some code in the page HTML that does this. So, how the hell do I get it to stop?

Ctrl-D and then a pulldown menu worked. Then select a folder. (SOme years ago, in FF as well as in Safari, the menu would automatically place your bookmark in the most recent folder if you did not specify otherwise. Now you have to sepcify Every. Damm. Time.) The past week, it is not an anomaly or occasional: Every. Damm. Time. I now also have to press Ctrl-D twice (or three times). Or click the bookmark star twice - or three times. Only and ONLY THEN will it give me the pulldown menu for which bookmarks folder to select. Pulldown menus in general - e.g. having to scroll through a menu of states intead of just TYPING "OR" or "WA" - seem to have been programmed by nasties who wish to make life more difficult in small, numerous, and frequent increments. But the bookmarking is over the line. It needs to be ONE action to select bookmarks. Then ONE action to select the destination folder.

Tiktok and YouTube bypass my Firefox autoplay settings. By default, I set Firefox to disable autoplay of audio and video. I seldom use the website, but when I do, it blasts music at me the moment I visit the site. As a headphone user, that's really annoying!

To a lesser degree, YouTube does as well. If I'm not subscribed to a channel, it will autoplay the channel's featured video on the Home tab. Example: https://www.youtube.com/user/carolinaeyckvideos

Hi! I'm posting this in hopes of getting help with a UI responsiveness problem that seems specific to Linux when GPU usage is very high. I use distributed computing through BOINC when weather is cold enough to allow it, but I've noticed that when my GPU is working on a task, Firefox is very unresponsive in most regards; scrolling lags behind my actual inputs, it takes longer to render new pages, and videos have issues like video/audio desync and audio stuttering.

That would seem normal to me considering my system resources are in heavy use, except for two things: these issues do not occur in Blink-based browsers (I've temporarily switched to Brave because of this issue), and more relevantly, they only occur in Firefox in Linux, not Windows Firefox.

I have already checked if this is because of settings or extensions by creating a new blank profile (which I am using right now), and that's not it - turning off hardware acceleration doesn't help either.

I see the Troubleshooting Information dump has a lot of system and hardware data in it, but I'd be happy to provide more details if needed. Thanks!
